The NHS Constitution states that research is a core function of the NHS. Clinical research is a major driver of innovation and central to NHS practice for maintaining and developing high standards of patient care.

Ultimately, clinical research means patients get access to new treatments, interventions and medicines. Investment in research means better, more cost-effective care for patients.

How can I get involved?

There are different ways that patients can become involved in studies our practice is
participating in.

  • A GP or nurse may talk to you about the study and ask whether you would consider
    taking part,
  • You may be sent information through the post if we feel that you might be a suitable
    participant, or
  • You may read information on the website about a current study you wish to take part in.

Look out for study posters in the waiting rooms.
